Well, what was she wearing? Asking that question would be victim shaming. But that’s the equivalent of what CNN did here.
Horrible news broke Sunday afternoon as details emerged of the vicious firebombing of the Orange County GOP Head Quarters in North Carolina. Nobody was killed in the attack, which is being described as a “political terrorism,” although the office itself was lost. According to authorities “Nazi Republicans get out of town or else” was spray-painted on a building close to the attack, but that didn’t stop CNN’s Brian Stelter from concluding Donald Trump’s “over heated the rhetoric” was what caused the attack.
During a segment on CNN’s Newsroom, the panel Stelter was on was discussing the recent series of death threats being received by an Arizona newspaper. “So the Arizona Republic getting so many death threats over an endorsement is an example of how over heated the rhetoric is,” Stelter then pivoted, “Another example out of North Carolina today, the firebombing of a local GOP office.”
“We have no idea who has done this. We don’t know if it’s a Republican, a Democrat, a movement. No idea. Could be some core of extremists, some sort of radical,” Stelter rambled on. But according to a report by The Hill, two hours before Stelter was on air, authorities found the graffiti labeling local Republicans as Nazis. That’s not really a term Republicans like to call each other oddly enough, it’s usually a term flung by the left.
“But that kind of action is unacceptable,” Stelter stated before setting his sights on Trump. “And we need to have the temperature come down on all sides right now,” he opined, “Unfortunately, Donald Trump is the lead in terms of raising the temperature at this moment in time.”
The media and the Democrat Party are so obviously in collusion that they’re heading down a dangerous path. I mean it. I know I do a lot of media bias stories. And sometimes I do it as just a kind of ‘point and laugh’ kind of way. But it’s so obvious now and so dark that I worry that some, who feel they have no voice, will take to other means of being heard. Many people feel that they have no voice in government and now the media is a propaganda agent rather than something for the people. They believe all the levers of government, including the FBI and the DOJ, are in the pockets of the powerful. They believe the same of the media. People without a voice will eventually make themselves heard.
I’m very worried.
